Shinseiki Asian Pear

Pyrus pyrifolia 'Shinseiki'
  • Summary
  • Hardiness Zone & More

Shineseiki Asian Pear is an early season Asian pear with yellow skin and very little russet. The fruit is medium in size with smooth creamy white flesh and a sweet, mild taste. Shinseiki is one of the earliest asian pears, ripening in mid-summer a couple weeks before Twentieth Century or Hosui.

Shinseiki means "New Century" in Japanese, and since it is similar in appearance to Twentieth Century, perhaps this is why it was so named. It was released in 1945.
